data color consistent with different visuals

Hello there, 


i have different visuals with different kind of data representation, but one common thing is the category (1,2,3...6).


I need to keep the data color consistent with all the visuals based on the category. 

i have tried conditional formating under data color  and it works perfectly with visuals having that option.

But how can that be done with the visuals without the conditional formating option( Parallel coordinates by Xviz).

is there a way you can set it globally in power BI, if catogory is selected for a visual then selected a hex color assigned to it in a colomn?


please help

@swaroopkumarmg , You can only give category based color grouping when conditional formatting is allowed. In case the option is not there you can not do much. For Standard power bi visual you can vote for an idea or create new. For custom visual contact developer.

@swaroopkumarmg since it is a custom visual, I would recommend reaching out to the developers of the visual.
